How the new system works, excerpt from Schaefer Gets $68 Million College Bill, The Sun (Baltimore, Md.), Page 4A, April 12, 1988.

Description

In 1988, Governor William Donald Schaefer signed a bill that would completely change the way Maryland divided the state's academic budget and programs. The newly created University System of Maryland (USM) would bring together the five University of Maryland campuses and six other public colleges. The bill also created a Cabinet-level Secretary of Education and a USM chancellor, responsible for 95% of USM's state funding and overseen by a Board of Regents. The first chancellor was University of Maryland President John S. Toll. At this time the title of the administrative leader of the individual campuses changed from chancellor to president.
